Information We Collect About You
When you access the Website, Evertrust Law will learn certain information about you during your visit.
Information You Provide To Us. The Website provides various places for users to provide information. We collect information that users provide by filling out forms on the Website, communicating with us via contact forms, responding to surveys, search queries on our search feature, providing comments or other feedback, and providing information when ordering a product or service via the Website.
We use information you provide to us to deliver the requested product and/or service, to improve our overall performance, and to provide you with offers, promotions, and information.
Information We Collect Through Automatic Data Collection Technology. As you navigate through our Website, we may use automatic data collection technologies including Google Analytics to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions, and patterns. This will generally include information about your location, your traffic pattern through our website, and any communications between your computer and our Website. Among other things, we will collect data about the type of computer you use, your Internet connection, your IP address, your operating system, and your browser type.
The information we collect automatically is used for statistical data and will not include personal information. We use this data to improve our Website and our service offerings. To the extent that you voluntarily provide personal information to us, our systems will associate the automatically collected information with your personal information.
Similar to other commercial websites, our website utilizes a standard technology called “cookies” and server logs to collect information about how our site is used. Information gathered through cookies and server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our site, and the websites visited just before and just after our own, as well as your IP address.
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
Evertrust Law reserves the right to use technological equivalents of cookies, including social media pixels. These pixels allow social media sites to track visitors to outside websites so as to tailor advertising messages users see while visiting that social media website. Evertrust Law reserves the right to use these pixels in compliance with the policies of the various social media sites.
We do not control these third parties' tracking technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content, you should contact the responsible provider directly.
If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received online, mail, and telephone. This also applies when you register for our website, sign up through any of our forms using your email address or make a purchase on this site. For further information see the email policies below.
We are committed to keeping your e-mail address confidential. We do not sell, rent, or lease our subscription lists to third parties, and will not disclose your email address to any third parties except as allowed in the section titled Disclosure of Your Information.
We will maintain the information you send via e-mail in accordance with applicable federal law.
In compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act, all e-mails sent from our organization will clearly state who the e-mail is from and provide clear information on how to contact the sender. In addition, all e-mail messages will also contain concise information on how to remove yourself from our mailing list so that you receive no further e-mail communication from us.
Our emails provide users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us and our partners by reading the unsubscribe instructions located at the bottom of any e-mail they receive from us at anytime.
Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional materials may opt-out of receiving these communications by clicking on the unsubscribe link in the e-mail.
How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us?
We use personal information for purposes of:
*Presenting our Website and its contents to you.
*To respond to your questions and requests.
*To communicate with you about our relationship.
*For other business purposes. For example, we may use your email address to share client briefings or events. We may also contact you about legal developments.
Disclosure Of Your Information
*We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights or when compelled by a court or other governmental entity to do so.
*We may disclose information to third parties who perform services on our behalf. For example, we share information with vendors. We may authorize them to collect information on our behalf. Some vendors may be located outside the United States.
*With our business partners. If we provide joint services, we share information with business partners.
*For other reasons we may describe to you.
How Do We Protect Your Information and Secure Information Transmissions?
We employ commercially reasonable methods to ensure the security of the information you provide to us and the information we collect automatically. This includes using standard security protocols and working only with reputable third-party vendors. The Internet is not 100% secure, though. We cannot promise that your use of our site will be completely safe. We encourage you to use caution on the Internet.
Email is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, we request that you do not send private information to us by email. However, doing so is allowed, but at your own risk.
Visitors’ GDPR Rights
1. Accessing your personal information You have the right to ask for a copy of the information that we hold about you by emailing or writing to us at the address at the end of this policy. This is known as a Subject Access Request. We may not provide you with a copy of your personal information if this concerns other individuals or we have another lawful reason to withhold that information.
2. Correcting and updating your personal information The accuracy of your information is important to us. If you change your name or address/email address, or you discover that any of the other information we hold is inaccurate or out of date, please let us know by contacting us at [email protected].
3. Withdrawing your consent Where we rely on your consent as the legal basis for processing your personal information, as set out under how and why we use your personal information, you may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us. If you would like to withdraw your consent to receive any direct marketing to which you previously opted-in, you can do so using the unsubscribe tool located at the bottom of all Evertrust Law marketing communications. If you withdraw your consent, our use of your personal information before you withdraw is still lawful. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, but we will keep your details on our files for the purpose of ensuring that we exclude you from any contact in due course.
4. Objecting to our use of your personal information and automated decisions made about you Where we rely on legitimate business interests as the legal basis for processing your personal information for any purpose(s), as outlined under how and why we use your personal information, you may object to us using your personal information for these purposes by emailing or writing to us. Except for the purposes for which we are sure we can continue to process your personal information, we will temporarily stop processing your personal information in line with your objection until we have investigated the matter. If we agree that your objection is justified in accordance with your rights under data protection laws, we will permanently stop using your data for those purposes. Otherwise, we will provide you with our justification as to why we need to continue using your data.
You may also object to us using your personal information for direct marketing purposes and we will automatically comply with your request. If you would like to do so, please use the unsubscribe tool located at the bottom of all Evertrust Law marketing communications.
5. Erasing your personal information or restricting its processing In certain circumstances, you may ask for your personal information to be removed from our systems by emailing or writing to us. Unless there is a reason that the law allows us to use your personal information for longer, we will make reasonable efforts to comply with your request.
You may also ask us to restrict processing your personal information where you believe it is unlawful for us to do so, you have objected to its use and our investigation is pending or you require us to keep it in connection with legal proceedings. In these situations, we may only process your personal information while its processing is restricted if we have your consent or are legally permitted to do so, for example for storage purposes, to protect the rights of another individual or company or in connection with legal proceedings.
6. Transferring your personal information in a portable data file (“data portability”) Where we rely on your consent as the legal basis for processing your personal information or need to process it in connection with your contract, as set out under how and why we use your personal information, you may ask us to provide you with a copy of that information in an appropriate format. We will provide this to you electronically in a commonly used form, such as on a USB device. You can ask us to send your personal information directly to another service provider, and we will do so if this is technically possible. We may not provide you with a copy of your personal information if this concerns other individuals or we have another lawful reason to withhold that information.
7. Complaining to the national data protection authority You have the right to complain to the national data protection authority if you are concerned about the way we have processed your personal information. Although you have the right to complain to the data protection authority, we encourage you to contact us (as set out below) first with a view to letting us help in resolving any issues, concerns or questions.
